A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on love, happy, wisdome, happiness, wise, god, be, be god, conversations with god, and love project

There's nothing I have to have, there's nothing I have to do, and there's nothing I have to be, except exactly what I am being right now.
That does not mean that "having" and "doing" will be eliminated from your life. It means that  what you experience yourself having or doing will spring from your being - not lead you to it.
When you come from "happiness", you do certain things because you are happy - as opposed to the old paradigm in which you did things that you hoped would make you happy.
When you come from "wisdom", you do certain things because you are wise, not because you are trying to get to wisdom.
When you come from "love", you do certain things because you are love, not because you want to have love.

Everything changes; everything turns around, when you come from "being", rather than seeking to "be." You cannot "do" your way to "being". Whether you are trying to "be" happy, be wise, be love - or be God - you cannot "get there" by doing. And yet, it is true that you will be doing wonderful things once you "get there."

Here is the Divine Dichotomy. The way to "get there" is to "be there." Just be where you choose to get!
It's that simply. There's nothing you have to do. You want to be happy? Be happy. You want to be wise? Be wise. You want to be love?

Be love.

That is Who You Are in any event.

You are my Beloved.

Neale Donald Walsch

A Quote by W. Somerset Maugham on abandon, free, wise, and buddhism

It needs a good deal of philosophy not to be mortified by the thought of persons who have voluntarily abandoned everything that for the most of us makes life worth living and are devoid of envy of what they have missed.  I have never made up my mind whether they are fools or wise men. 

W. Somerset Maugham

A Quote by John Clellon Holmes on life, heal, lose, wise, and maim

    And just then he realized in a flash that men have only this sad knowledge with which to heal themselves:  when you lose life, you grow wise.  But that is better than maiming life to hold it.

A Quote by Dr. Albert Schweitzer on optimist, pessimist, optimism, pessimism, wise, and wisdom

An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while the pessimist sees only the red stoplight. The truly wise person is colorblind.

A Quote by Astavakra Gita on being, self, wise, wisdom, and self-knowledge

Of the four kinds of being,
From Brahma to a blade of grass,
Only the wise man is strong enough
To give up desire and aversion.
How rare he is!
Knowing he is the Self,
He acts accordingly
And is never fearful.
For he knows he is the Self,
One without two,
The Lord of all creation.

Astavakra Gita
